AACSB International is the most prestigious international accrediting body specifically for schools/colleges of business. AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accreditation is difficult to achieve and difficult to maintain. Less than 5% of the world's business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation. The UW Oshkosh College of Business has been accredited by AACSB since 1970. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognized form of specialized/professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn. (View UW Oshkosh College of Business AACSB Accreditation page.)
There are 780 business schools in 53 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. The College of Business at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is one of them and is fully accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. AACSB International is the professional association for college and university management education and the premier accrediting agency for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting. Of the approximate 1,600 U.S. schools offering business degree programs only 31% maintain this honor, according to AACSB International. This accreditation provides assurance that you are receiving the quality education needed in today's competitive global job market and can make the necessary difference when beginning your career.
The College of Business at UW Oshkosh is the only business program in Northeast Wisconsin offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
